About This Lecture
The role and importance of women in national security was recognized in United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, the Women, Peace & Security resolution, in 2000. Since then laws, strategies and implementation plans for the inclusion of more women in security affairs have been introduced in over 70 countries, including the United States. Advances have been made, but hurdles remain, including challenges with engaging men in the traditionally male-dominated national security sector on how and why advancing and including women is vital to changing the status quo.
About the Lecture Series
The Issues in National Security (INS) lectures are specifically designed to offer scholarly lectures to the spouses, partners and significant others of military and civilian employees assigned to the U.S. Naval War College (NWC), Naval Station Newport and its tenant activities, NWC Foundation members and local-area retirees or active/reserve personnel. Participation is voluntary and neither reading assignments nor written requirements will apply.
The INS lectures will be held on the campus of NWC in Pringle Auditorium on select Tuesday afternoons from 4:30 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. There will be a total of ten lectures offered during the period starting in January through May.
These academic lectures are being offered to the participants, however no formal academic credit will be awarded. Participants who attend at least 70% of the lectures will be presented with a certificate that documents their completion of the NWC INS Lecture Series.
